North Korea uploaded a video [1]¬†entitled “I'm Yushin style!” in its government website Uriminzokkiri as a parody of South Korean pop sensation, ‘Gangnam Style [2]‘. The parody lambasts Park Geun-hye,¬†South Korean ruling conservative party's presidential candidate. Ms. Park is a daughter of former President Park Chung-hee, whose “Yushin [3]” system brutally suppressed democracy and free speech in the 1970s.
